This paper describes (1) the findings from the implementation of a component test methodology for body, engine and transmission mounts [1-3], and (2) the associated CAE model development and mount design robustness enhancement. A series of component tests on light truck body, engine and transmission mounts have been conducted to not only obtain their characteristics as inputs for crashworthiness analysis, but also drive mount design direction for frontal impacts. In this paper, the lessons… CONTINUE READING
